In Peace We Trust Nonviolence - The Next Great Revolution is an inspiring half-hour documentary exploring the mission and philosophy of the Meta Peace Team.  Learn how co-founder C.

Hello Friends,
Thanks for visiting.  2020 has been a year of change and new beginnings.  COVID-19 interrupted everyone’s plans and the pandemic is forcing all of us to be safe and creative.  I was working with the Meta Peace Team to organize a summer tour for my last documentary In Peace We Trust, and like so many public events we had to postpone the tour.  So when I heard from the Reel Women’s Network a new online streaming service showcasing content made by women I was excited to be a part of this important and much needed new network.  In Peace We Trust is now available on RWN!
I have great respect for the women behind The Reel Women’s Network.  It was created by Open book Productions and Bella Productions.  They understand why creating an outlet for women (and men) to support women in film and media is so important. 

Why is it important to support women in film?
